Internet Connectivity is the backbone of the global economy, accounting for almost a quarter of the entire world’s GDP. However, critical digital economy applications remain underserved by the terrestrial backbone connectivity, creating a critical opportunity for satellite operator networks to play a crucial in unlocking the next wave of digital-enabled growth. SATELLITE 2016 features an all-new High-Throughput Satellite Forum produced in partnership with NSR, and a “Connectivity for a Cause” session that explores the power and social responsibility of global satellite broadband connectivity.


Satellite innovation is going to change the way the entire world operates, as the potential of remote-sensing constellations, connected device networks, climate data solutions and consumer technology attracts a new wave of big-name investors and customers. At the same time, the continued growth and long-term viability of the satellite industry depends on continuing to attract the best and brightest minds to the sector. As the world’s largest satellite-focused show, SATELLITE 2016 prides itself on being inclusive. We invite leaders from established, start-up and NewSpace organizations together on the same stage to outline the future of the industry.


Satellite communications are the definition of mobility – on land, sea and in the air. Businesses and consumers around the world count on high-powered mobile satellite communications for day-to-day operations and reliable voice, video and data transmissions regardless of location. Our Mobility Forum, produced in partnership with the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA), gives attendees an exclusive view of a world with complete, seamless connectivity, powered by satellite and hybrid communications networks.
